Trevor Linden’s fans were out in force Thursday, May 16 at the Castlegar Community Complex, and the ages represented were from four or five to 91.

The Vancouver Canucks legend, who also played briefly with the New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals was in town as the special guest speaker at conference of recreation program specialists meeting over a couple of days in Castlegar.

Three spirited games got the retired athlete and active businessman into the swing of things.

“There’s nothing a game of good old fashioned street-hockey,” said Linden afterwards. “It’s certainly so much fun to see the different age levels. It’s really fun to part of, and to connect with the community like I wasn’t able to when I was playing.”
